The Atlas of California: Mapping the Challenge of a New Era (Atlas Of… (University of California Press))
As one of the greatest states in the nation, California has a superbly rich history that has caused millions of people to flock to all it has to offer. However, California is being stressed physically, economically, financially, and politically. The questions remaining are what can be done to alleviate the compounding issues, and what is California’s future? Professors Richard Walker and Suresh Lodha provide extensive research in easy-to-read graphs and photos divided up into ten chapters covering the entire state’s economics and well-being, including a chapter directly related to the challenges faced when using and interpreting collected data for a project such as this.
The amount of research is astounding and all sources are listed at length, making it easy for readers to verify the data. This is an engrossing read and I easily found myself lost within the colorful pages. As a Californian, this book is a powerful tool and should be used by residents, educators, and professionals alike as an informational tool to keep and make California the place of dreams. I definitely recommend picking up this book.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
